連鎖對話
Chain of Dialogues
劉曉江 Lawrence Lau

談起「社區」,最常見的詞語都離不開「共同」,比如說「集體回憶」、「共享空間」、「約定俗成」。對於流動人口遠大於固定人口的灣仔區,是否還有更多尋找「共同」的媒介或方式?

以聲音作為媒介,邀請你接受訪問,紀錄答案之餘,透過你的發問,連結下一位受訪的灣仔人,創造一個問答相續的平台,一串又一串的問與答,加上受訪者送贈下一位的歌曲,將會成為獨特的灣仔區聲景。

劉曉江將於9至11月期間,在灣仔街頭進行「連鎖對話」,期待與大家的相遇。

活動後段 (12月期間),將會以一場「神秘音樂約會」,作為契機,讓參與過問答的群眾聚首同一空間,繼續以聲音/音樂創造共同經歷,探索彼此進一步溝通的可能。

When we talk about “community” we talk a lot about sharing. Common terms like “collective memories”, “space sharing” and “social conventions” are all about shared understanding. In Wanchai, where its number of commuter is much larger than its number of usual residents, is there another way to look for its common ground?

Using sound as a medium, you are invited to attend an interview. Your answers will be recorded, and the questions you posted will link up with the next interviewee. These chained questions and answers will become a platform. Each interviewee will also suggest a song as a gesture of courtesy for the next one. All these will add up to create a unique Wanchai soundscape.

Lawrence will carry out the ‘chain of dialogues’ on the streets in Wanchai in September to November. Looking forward to the encounters with you!

There will be a “secret music gathering” in the end. All interviewees will be invited to meet at a physical space. They will continue to create a collective experience with sound and music, and opening up a continuous dialogue.
